    Default Stealth GT reel

    Evening Gents

    I have a 7-9wt Stealth GT reel which I am using in the salt. Unfortunately I have not yet picked up anything decent that gave the drag a proper "workout". I was wondering if any of you guys who own a similar reel have been in the fortunate position to tell the tale as to whether or not the reel could do the job?

    Regards

    Unfortunately, the only feedback I've heard about these reels in places like the Seychelles have been bad. Drag's seizing up, reel's disintegrating, etc. And do you really want to risk a trophy fish on a reel like that?
    If I were you, I'd sell it and buy something tried and tested...like Shilton, Abel, Tibor, etc.

    Any more comments on these reels?

    I have been offered a 12wt Stealth GT for R900. Brand new. Sounds to good to be true!

    Is there a reason they are selling it for that price? Should I save the extra 4k and get a Shilton...?

    Thanks
